Kal Penn Returns For Harold & Kumar 3
Kal Penn is set to return to our screens after spending a year working at the White House as Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement (seriously, we’re not making this up – either that or someone’s got us with an April Fool’s gag or we’ve been eating too many special brownies).
He’s all set to star alongside John Cho (presumably on shore leave from the Enterprise) in a third Harold & Kumar movie preliminarily titled A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.
No word on plot yet but presumably the old reliable formula of weed, badly thought out road-trips and the wonderful Neil Patrick Harris will serve them well for a third instalment.
The writers of the first two films Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are lined up to write and direct this one although Deadline New York are reporting that New Line are “about to hire” a director, so maybe someone else is being courted for the role.
It’s due to shoot this summer for a possible 2011 release after Penn finishes his duties at the White House.
